I hope that if you’ve been hit by this awful cold that you’re staying warm! I’m on my 3rd cup of tea and 14th hour of wishing I was back on the west coast.
I’ve spent the last couple days writing blog posts, editing videos, and getting back in the swing of things!
For those of you not familiar, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. This meme spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases. 2018 has a ton of amazing books coming out so it will be super easy to highlight a release for the rest of the year.
This week’s pick:
This week I’m highlighting Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte.
A divided nation. Four Queens. A ruthless pickpocket. A noble messenger. And the murders that unite them.
Get in quick, get out quicker.
These are the words Keralie Corrington lives by as the preeminent dipper in the Concord, the central area uniting the four quadrants of Quadara. She steals under the guidance of her mentor Mackiel, who runs a black market selling their bounty to buyers desperate for what they can’t get in their own quarter. For in the nation of Quadara, each quarter is strictly divided from the other. Four queens rule together, one from each region:
Toria: the intellectual quarter that values education and ambition
Ludia: the pleasure quarter that values celebration, passion, and entertainment
Archia: the agricultural quarter that values simplicity and nature
Eonia: the futurist quarter that values technology, stoicism and harmonious community
When Keralie intercepts a comm disk coming from the House of Concord, what seems like a standard job goes horribly wrong. Upon watching the comm disks, Keralie sees all four queens murdered in four brutal ways. Hoping that discovering the intended recipient will reveal the culprit – information that is bound to be valuable bartering material with the palace – Keralie teams up with Varin Bollt, the Eonist messenger she stole from, to complete Varin’s original job and see where it takes them.
This one sounds like an epic fantasy and I can’t wait to dive in! I’ve had an ARC of this one since BookCon and I’m planning to get it read before release date.
This book sounds like it’ll be full of mischief, mayhem, and all the things we fantasy lovers need. The different queens and the different quarters sound so interesting and I can’t wait to learn all about them.
I feel like this could be a 5-star adventure and I can’t wait to go on this wild ride!
